Two suspects are in jail for a burglary that occurred on Feb. 5 at a Straight Mountain residence, according the Blount County Chief Deputy Brian Whitt.

Kassi Lynn Vaughn, 24, and Jamie Ray Waters, 35, were charged following an investigation where the BCSO posted surveillance photos on the department’s Facebook page and received tips about the pair’s identity. The U.S. Marshal’s Fugitive Task Force helped locate the suspects in Ohatchee in Calhoun County. Blount County deputies, including Sheriff Mark Moon, participated in the Monday night arrests.

Vaughn and Waters are both charged with one count of third-degree burglary and twelve counts of theft of property in the second degree. Their current residences were unavailable, but court records show Waters at a Hayden address at one time. They remain in the Blount County jail. A court date has not been set.
